Description Andre Robatino 2009-06-20 06:52:00 EDT
Description of problem:
After applying all updates including transmission 1.71-1, I suddenly couldn't get any incoming connections through my chosen port, even though transmission itself said that port was open.  After downgrading just transmission to the original 1.53-1, incoming connections were back.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Join a torrent with lots of peers.
Actual results:
No incoming connections.

Expected results:
Some incoming connections.

I downloaded Fedora Edu Spin via torrent with this version and didn't have this problem. Can't reproduce this. Can you point me to the specific torrent you had a problem with? Can you try with other torrent files. 


Comment 2 Rahul Sundaram 2009-06-20 20:06:11 EDT
While the reported bug isn't reproducible by me, I just wanted to note that a new upstream release 1.72 has been built for Fedora 11 and pushed to updates-testing repo


It is waiting on rel-eng to sign it but you would be able to pull it from koji. Appreciate your testing since it might fix the problem for you
Comment 3 Andre Robatino 2009-06-20 22:42:58 EDT
The torrent in Comment #1 was the exact one I tested.  In any case, the problem disappears with 1.72-1, comes back when downgrading to 1.71-1, without any other configuration changes.  Left feedback for 1.72-1.
Comment 4 Rahul Sundaram 2009-06-21 04:14:19 EDT
Thanks for confirming. I am pushing this update directly to stable.
Comment 5 Charles Kerr 2009-06-21 05:46:07 EDT
Andre: I think you're right about this.  It was a copy-paste error introduced
in 1.71 by <http://trac.transmissionbt.com/changeset/8636/trunk/libtransmission/fdlimit.c>, and fixed in 1.72 by <http://trac.transmissionbt.com/changeset/8654/trunk/libtransmission/fdlimit.c>.

The version transmission-1.72-1 from updates-released also works, closing as CURRENTRELEASE.
